About This Project

My husband had a hideous kmart table (see the before pic) with target chairs that he bought before we were married more than 9 years ago. I have never liked that table but it was what we could afford at the time. The table managed to make it through 4 military moves before I ripped it apart last week and used Ana's farmhouse table plan to make the planked top with pine boards. Her plan calls for 2 inch boards and I used 1 inch boards but it turned out great and I love it. And I bought new chairs from walmart.com to go with it. I'm a beginner woodworker and have only made a few small projects but this one was manageable for me. I love love love my new table!

From Plan (new): 
Estimated Cost: 
Including wood, screws, primer, paint, stain, poly, sandpaper, and brushes, just under $100
Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
Pine 1x6s and 1x8s plus some 2x2s for support underneath
Finish Used: 
On the tabletop: Minwax Dark Walnut oil-based wood stain (used wood conditioner first) and then 3 coats of Minwax Semi-Gloss Polyurethane. For the stain, I brushed it on with a foam brush, let sit 15 minutes and then wiped excess off with a rag. Only one application was needed for a nice deep warm color. On the table bottom and legs: Valspar Dark Kettle Black semi-gloss paint.

Amazing.

Gorgeous. And so much more character than the original! I had a table like that during grad school. I painted the legs and apron black but never thought to build a new top. I wish I had!!

:P

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.

This is awesome!

I have a super old table my parents gave us (and it was used when they got it too...when I was 9!) Anyhow, it has that exact type of leg. I have been wondering if the legs would work if I wanted to use them for our farmhouse table when I get up the guts to give building a try :) Thanks so much, your picture gives me hope!!

Thanks so much!! The table looks awesome!

Japan's very interesting. Some people think it copies things. I don't think that anymore. I think what they do is reinvent things. They will get something that's already been invented and study it until they thoroughly understand it. In some cases, they understand it better than the original inventor.

Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
